Microwave Peppermint Candy Cane Fudge

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American

This microwave peppermint flavored fudge is festive and makes a great holiday gift. It's easy to make and stores well, too.


  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 (14-oz) can condensed milk
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 4 drops red food coloring


  1. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate and condensed milk. Microwave for about 30 seconds and remove and stir until chocolate is mostly melted. Microwave again for another 30 seconds and stir again. Repeat again for another 30 seconds. Chocolate should be completely melted and smooth. Careful not to overheat in microwave. Add in peppermint extract and mix again until smooth.

  2. Pour fudge into pan and spread evenly across. Add four drops of red food coloring near the four corners of the pan. Using a fork, make figure 8's in the fudge until red food coloring is mixed in and you have swirls of red throughout. Place in fridge for several hours to set. Cut with sharp knife into bite-sized squares.
